    Always loved the Art Deco vehicles. Awesome project. Looks like you've got it under control.

    I just checked out your blog and WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You all are doing a fantastic job-especially with the gauges! They went from solid rust to real gauges again.

  4. Thanks so much Mike.
  5. Over the past six months, the Stewart Warner gauges on the Texaco tanker have been repaired and restored. New fish plates have been manufactured and secured to the chassis rails using hot rivets. The fabrication work on the cab and tank has been completed and both structures have been blasted and epoxy primed. New windshield frames have been formed, the chassis painted and the front end reassembled. Here are a handful of photos from the website

    Thanks for posting the photos of your progress. Not everyone is into the other social media stuff, a half year is a long time between HAMB postings. Looks great! Bob
